About Bill Watford
About Bill Watford I am a native Floridian. There are a lot of nice cities in Florida and my two favorite small towns are Deland on the east side of the state and Cedar Key due west on the Gulf of Mexico. I started buying houses to rent as an investment while I had a full time day job, my first in 1985 and I still own it - the Cedar House of Deland. My full time job today is managing the vacation rentals and short stay properties that I own. I have several in Deland: The Units of the Deland Marigold, Grandma's Place, and The Cedar House. I also have two in Cedar Key: The TreeHouse and Goose Cove Cottage. I enjoy what I do and am passionate about seeing that my guests have a great experience while staying in one of my properties.
Bill Watford purchased this Apartment in 2010
Why Bill Watford chose DeLand
This property is located only 4 blocks from the center of Deland, an historic town with a rich culture going back to the Mid 1800’s. It has been voted the Best Small Town in America several times. This property’s location is in a very private enclave that most people don’t even know is there with close proximity to historic downtown full of locally-owned shops and restaurants.. It’s as if you are in the quiet of the country. You can hear the bells of St Peters Cathedral across the street and even the gentle waters of their fountain. It is within walking distance of the beautiful campus of Stetson University and also only 3 miles away from the St. Johns River.
What makes this Apartment unique
Inside, the unit is laid out like a residence Inn with a master bedroom and bathroom, huge living room, and a large fully equipped kitchen. Adjacent to the living area is a front patio that overlooks the landscaped yard, a relaxing place for morning coffee or tea. The whole property is designed for comfort and quietness.

We had a very nice & quiet stay at this property. Our dog was very comfortable here as well. This allowed us to visit our Mother at the cloisters for extended hours without worry.
Being near the center of town makes it a great place to stay for visiting family at the various Senior Living places Deland has and for visiting with Stetson Students. Also we love hosting your four legged family as well.
Way more spacious than I anticipated. Clean and well stocked. Great parking spaces and ramp.
I was in town for Stetson graduation and preferred this type of accommodation over a hotel anyday. I could cook my own food and relax in the evening. The place is super close to downtown which makes it convenient and close to Spec Martin Stadium for easy access to graduation ceremony. I will be returning during Bike Week because it super close to Daytona and reasonably priced.
Nice Place and Property.
We had a great stay at the Marigold. Apartment was clean and had everything we needed. Met some nice people who were staying there also. Very convenient location to all your shopping needs. Thanks we had a great Stay
Yes the Marigold is situated just a short walk from downtown Deland which has been voted the Best downtown in the Nation in America's Main Street competition in June 2017. It truly has so much to offer and hosts multiple festivals every year. My favorite is the Mardi Gras Dog Parade where locals dress up their pooches for that year's theme and then parade them in front of thousands of people! It is so fun. One year it was "Off to the Races" and a lot of little dogs were wearing little jockeys on their backs. And of course, we host a Bike Week coinciding with Daytona's where the downtown is closed off just for bikers for the weekend. Whether you're here to get your kid situated at Stetson University, a NASCAR Race, seeing family or any other reason for visiting Deland, we can offer you a great place to stay.
Very nice, clean and a joy
We were greeted by Scott, the maintenance man. He helped us into the apartment. It was clean and even with it being bike week quiet. If we find ourselves in the area we will definitely stay here again. Just a lovely place.
The Marigold is a great place to stay during special events in the area. You are downtown but walking around the Marigold grounds
has that away from it all feeling. We take care of the details so you can have a pleasant stay experience.
Perfect for my visit to Deland
I came to town to watch my daughters softball game at Stetson University. This location is close to everything I needed and was an easy drive to the fields. Everything I needed was provided. I would definitely stay again.
Comfortable, private and conveniently located
The apartment was very nice. Conveniently located close to the center of DeLand and Stetson University. Ample room and well appointed.
